A few weeks ago we finally completed our Junior League provisional project and I totally forgot to post about it!
As you may remember, my provisional group was assigned an in home day care center on the east side of Cleveland and asked to renovate one room. The program was designed around literacy so the list of desired supplies centered around books, educational toys, puzzles...that sort of thing. Let me just say...I heart Target.
Here's what we started with:
The room was upstairs off the only bathroom in the house. There was no carpet on the floor and with all the windows it got very cold. There was also virtually no room for the children to play or a place to put a diapering station which the caregiver desperately needed.
So we went to work. And in only 30 minutes...here's what we were able to do:
I must say the room was virtually unrecognizable. We were able to provide tons of books and toys for the kids, a rug that covered almost all of the exposed linoleum, and a brand new changing table.
But this was the best moment of the day:
She was SO excited. Lots of "happy tears!"
This is Erin, one of our group members. We nicknamed her "Ty Pennington" for obvious reasons.
What a better way to start a Saturday morning, right?
Oh, but then we followed it up with lunch and cupcakes...so it was perfection :)
